The word 'cuál' is a Spanish pronoun that translates to 'which' or 'what' in English. It is used to ask questions about choices or options.

Cuál can be used to inquire about a specific item or person from a group of possibilities. It is often followed by the verb 'ser' (to be) and the preposition 'de' (of). For example, '¿Cuál es tu color favorito?' means 'What is your favorite color?'

In addition to its interrogative function, cuál can also be used as a relative pronoun to introduce a subordinate clause. In this case, it is often translated as 'which' or 'that'. For example, 'El libro cuál compré ayer es muy interesante' means 'The book which I bought yesterday is very interesting.'
